Career-Op: I told you so

by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine

One of the most frustrating positions at work or home is when you want to say ?I told you so?, but can?t. In business this usually occurs when you warn against a problem only to have the problem occur anyway. While you are probably wise enough to not say it out loud, the chorus of ?I told you so? echoing in your head can sometimes become deafening. As you can imagine, though, expressing those thoughts could lead to your marginalization, if not to the outright loss of your job. While this can be an ugly situation, there are a few ways to help ease the pain, both to your psyche and your high-tech career.
